we actually talked to some of them by why they're here and their experiences and what it all means to them. >> i have a son and a son-in-law, both in vietnam. i had two brothers in world war ii. i think it would be good if every boy had to spend one year after school in service for our country. >> it's very fortunate with most of the patients we got, most of them were injured badly enough that they didn't have to go back to service, so they had an awful lot of patients. >> normally, you see a couple people from the group, friends of the world war ii memorial. they're actually in the midst of an excellent project. they are collecting histories from some of the veterans.

another woman not related to petraeus felt she was being harassed and complained to the fbi. in recent weeks, the fbi traced the e-mails to broadwell and only stumbled upon the relationship with petraeus as a result. >> it's so politically sensitive that my guess is the decision was made near or at the top level of the fbi to sit down with general petraeus and have a discussion with him and let him know that this information had been discovered. >> reporter: broadwell has not been shy about her access to petraeus, co-hosting a barbecue with jon stewart. she spoke often about her connection to the cia director acknowledging it rubbed some in the military the wrong way. >> i was imbedded with general petraeus in afghanistan and it was a little confusing because i'm also military reservist with a top secret cia clearance and then some so. a lot of my former peers didn't know how to treat me.

70 degrees later today. right along the immediate coastline where it was a milder night, temperatures in the low 50s. any hint of a bay breeze will hold your temperatures in the 60s close to the bay later on this afternoon. a lot of folks since the redskins have the week off are focusing on the reigns. ravens hosting the oakland raiders today in baltimore. game is at 1:00. from 1:00 to 4:00 this afternoon, temperatures mid to upper 60s. tons of sunshine and a nice south breeze. good luck for the home team. here's the storm system that generated the snow in the video. big drops indeed. yesterday, lincoln, nebraska, 78 degrees. they're down below freezing this morning, so they dropped 50 degrees in about 12 hours. luckily, we're not facing that kind of an extreme temperature drop around here. but when that front does arrive, we'll go from the lower mid 50s early tuesday morning back down into the upper 30s by late
tuesday afternoon into tuesday evening. so it will be a dramatic drop, but it won't be that kind of dramatic. delightful sunshine for today. i hope you have a chance to get outside and enjoy it. clouds sneaking back into the area late tonight. high pressure off the coastline is going to allow a little bit more of than atlantic moisture. you'll probably get a little sunshine front half of the day tomorrow, but not much sunshine. by about lunchtime tomorrow, almost everybody should be covered up by clouds. it will stay dry for most of us all the way through the end of the day tomorrow. rain chances really start to ramp up out towards the shenandoah valley. and in town, probably going to be raining before you go back to work on your tuesday morning commute. sunny and nice today, nothing to worry about. highs near 70. back into the mid and upper 60s again tomorrow, but with all the clouds around, it won't look or feel quite so pretty as outside today. there's the rest of the week. chilly rain drops on tuesday followed by very chilly sunshine
